Two Men Were Detained on Drug and Gun Charges This Week

The Regional Narcotics Unit said on Friday that two men were arrested this week on charges of drug trafficking and having weapons (RNU).

Luis Zepeda-Partida, who is 33, and William Nunez, who is 29, were picked up by RNU detectives on September 23.

In September, a woman was found dead on Sugar Hill Drive in Sun Valley. RNU and Washoe County detectives looked into a possible overdose.

Detectives say Nunez set up the crime before the police arrived, and further investigation showed that Nunez was selling and trafficking multiple drugs.

Nunez and Zepeda-Partida were arrested at a local casino after RNU and Washoe County detectives led an investigation to find them.

Cocaine, fentanyl, and about 12 pounds of methamphetamine that were used for trafficking were found. Both people were also found with weapons.

The charges against Zepeda-Partida were:

  • Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance for Sales
  • Trafficking of a Controlled Substance
  • Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person
  • Offering False Evidence
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance for Sales
  • Trafficking of a Controlled Substance
  • Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person

If you know more about this case, please call the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Detectives Unit at 775-328-3320 and say you have information about case #WC22-4836.
